So as today’s cartoon shows, there seems to be more to Napoleon that many of us didn’t know. Two things I found interesting while reading this article were that he created battle plans in a sandbox and he was desperately afraid of cats. Well I would be too if I had to fend the cats off from trying to pee in my sandbox. This was fun to do so I will be coming up with more odd facts to share in cartoon form in the future.
Won’t be around the blogosphere much this weekend so please try to behave.
I’d be afraid of anything half my body weight that walked on all fours and had retractable claws. 😉
Probably a good way to look at it.
I agree with Bill. It’s the retractable claws that scare me. I fear my Mum & Dad’s cat. He hates me & he knows it. Maybe the problem was that he didn’t know that his sandbox was actually the kitty litter tray & the cat just needed to go poopys
And that is what would scare me is to find a pile of cat poop in my sandbox
I don’t really understand what it’s all about or what it’s for but my Avast Antivirus has a sandbox mode. I hope there’s no kitty poopy in my computer…
Can’t remember if I said previously but I like your new site design. Looks great
Like this one, Bearman… Napoleon is always butting into the private worlds of others!
RE: this weekend… OK, I’ll behave if you do… 😉
just as I suspected… you devil you…
Wow…..I’ve been so busy moving I had no idea you were re-doing your whole website. Looks great! I like it a lot better. I’ll stop in here again soon and browse around.
Thanks…still some pages to add but it is close to where i want it for the next 4 years. haha
Well that’s an odd fact indeed. Yikes.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
I am the king of odd facts
Wow! Your site is starting to get educational 🙂
What do you mean…starting?? haha
I like that you made him about the size of the cat. I knew he was short but not Peter Dinklage short 😉
That probably wasn’t pc but to his credit I think he is the best actor on Game of Thrones.
Definitely gets all the lines and the women
Peters usually do.
LOL… oh, putting that pun back into the box and quietly walking away… No, I’m still laughing.
Too bad Peter signed in as Binky…seems creepy hearing Binky saying it. haha
I was still laughing about this morning. Good grief I need to grow up 🙂
I suppose Britain should have sent an army of cats to fight him, then.
No one thought of that plan
im scared of cats………………………………………………………………………. omg what if IM Napoleon reincarnated!??
that would explain the shortness and fraidiness of cats..but i havent conquered any countries just yet…
Question is do you constantly have your hand up your own shirt?
I have a cat, and sometimes…you gotta be afraid haha 🙂
I have mine trained haha
I’m pretty sure he wasn’t holding catnip inside his jacket in all his portraits.
So that is how he met his water-loo !!!!
Haha. Yes indeed
BAH! I finally return from exile and loon beats me to the comment!
Got to get here early to get the first puns
He was probably afraid of digging up some land mines!
10 years later I still need a shirt over my face to clean the litter
Do I just have some sand in my eyes, or does it look a bit different around here?! FANCY! Nice work, Bearman (I love your Napoleon, too, of course. Vote for Pedro. Wait… that’s not quite right…)
Thanks…I was working hard while you were on vacation
I don’t like cats either. I don’t fear ’em, just don’t like ’em.
Wasn’t a fan myself until I married a cat woman
Napoleon never mentioned to me that he was afraid of cats. Yep, I’m old.
Maybe he had heart troubles too and that is why he was always checking to make sure it was still beating.
Maybe his defibrillator was bothering him.
My favorite ice cream is Napoleon.
It always freaks me out how cats will stare at a spot on the wall for a minute and then run away and hide! Maybe they see Napoleons ghost….
Why run away…his ghost is the one afraid.
Who wants something crapping all over their war plans? It would make me pissy as well! [meoow]
You have some hairball schemes…so it might work for you
Luckily I always behave myself when visiting so no worries on that score 🙂 This is a very interesting idea adding historical facts as cartoons, and the way that you offer them always adds a giggle my fine friend, I can just imagine what Napoleon found in his sandbox being that I have a cat and she is always in there, well it beats the alternative 🙂 Those ginger cats can be quite aggressive you know 🙂 lol
I used to have a girlfriend with a ginger Moggie, hey watch it
Bearman I meant her pet cat not what you were thinking 😉 lmao
This was a really good one, I hope you do more in this vein!
I have a few in mind..thanks
haha this is awesome!
